Ok, so i should be doing the Chocolate Armagnac Cake for TWD this week chosen by Lyb of And I do the Dishes, but i really can't handle another recipe with chocolate in it. Judging by the picture in From my Home to Yours it looks really, really, rich and chocolaty. Additionally, it has Armagnac in it and as I don't drink.... well its not really a recipe for me.
I saw this recipe on smittenkitchen and my goodness they looked so good i absolutely had to make them. I haven't had a good, i mean really good, oatmeal raisin cookie in a while so here goes!
The recipe was so easy to follow and it didn't make a huge batch of cookies which was great. I did overbake some of them a little but these are really good. I think it is missing something though, maybe a little more cinnamon.....
My oldest son who has a very sweet tooth did not like these at all. I think it had to do with the raisins and him thinking the cookies were healthy. However my husband loved these!
